I have visited the The Court Yard before and have found the found plentiful reasonable and delicious. The two waitresses are so polite professional and absolute joy. They are so helpful, that what is meant to be a refuel stop turns into a memorable dining experience

Had lunch there with a friend. The staff were attentive and friendly. I had the goats cheese tartlet and my friend had the Pate. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. It was our first time there and we will return. Price was reasonable.
